Return of the King & Queen

Today's pick out of the WIP box was this one, ''Arwen & Aragorn." Started back in 2005 and like many other WIPs, waiting to see daylight lol. This one has many changes to it, in fact the only orgional parts of Celtic Summer left are the profile of her face, and the skirt will only have it's colors changed. I changed her face to be softer blended, enlarged her eye, and gave her elf ears and her crown- that was a given lol. The sleeve has been redone to look more like bell sleeves.  If you have ever seen Lord of the Rings this WIP is based on "Return of the King" when the war is over and Aragorn first sees Arwen at his coronation after thinking that she is dead, and she wears a sea green dress with spring green sleeves. Aragorn's armor was fun to design too, he's mostly metallics because of it. This one will stay on the Qs till I work out some trouble spots on him. Last of the Celtic LOTRs will be Arwen Evenstar who has her horse, and she'll be the next Celtic out of the box. But since it is Guilt Free January I need to start a new WIP,, so once I get Aragorn's cape better managed I will reward with one of Nora's reindeer :) . Happy stitching and thanks for stoppin by!
